Looking for something fun to do this weekend? We've rounded up lots of fun activities that will keep you entertained until Monday morning!

Martinis are like the chameleon of alcoholic beverages. They can be simple or extravagant, made with vodka, gin, or other bases, and come in a full rainbow of colors and flavors that appeal to a wide audience like no other drink can. Unlike chameleons, though, martinis have an official day! That's right, June 19 is National Martini Day! To celebrate, we've rounded up three of the best martinis in Lake George. Once you read about these delectable drinks, you'll want to get out and celebrate the special day for yourself!

Ever wondered what it's like to be a bird soaring over Lake George? Want to feel the wind rush by while you take in remarkable views of the Adirondacks? Soon, you'll be able to! Construction is currently underway on a 3,500-foot zip-line that is sure to be one of Lake George's most thrilling and unique attractions once it's completed.

In need of some fun weekend plans? Look no further! Our weekend round up has you covered with details on concerts, festivals, dining specials, and outdoor activities going on in Lake George and the surrounding area.

We may be a little biased, but we've always known that Lake George is the most dazzling lake in the country. All we have to do is spend an afternoon at the beach, on top of a mountain, or in the water itself and we know without a doubt that there's no place we'd rather be. Other people are finally catching on to what we've known all along, and the proof is in the fact that Oyster.com recently named Lake George as "The Most Beautiful Lake In The U.S."
